Hamilton, Bermuda-based Everest Re Group Ltd. on Tuesday said Christopher McKeon has joined Everest Insurance as the leader of its new commercial casualty unit within the risk management group, targeting upper middle-market clients within select industry segments.

Mr. McKeon, who will be based in New York, joins Everest Insurance from American International Group, Inc., where he most recently worked as head of primary casualty corporate accounts.

He will oversee a unit that will provide multiline primary casualty solutions for accounts with loss picks between $250,000 and $1 million, Everest Re said in a statement. 

He will report directly to David Sandler, head of the Everest Risk Management Group.

"We are delighted that Chris has joined Everest,” Mr. Sandler said in the statement. “He is an accomplished and action oriented leader, as well as a sound underwriting technician who I’ve had the pleasure of knowing, and working with, for many years. Chris’s knowledge of the upper middle market space, his industry and client relationships and his marketplace reputation, will be an asset to Everest as we launch our new Commercial Casualty unit.”
